Turned out really good! I thought it would make it really dull looking, but it still has the bright sexy tone.

Couple more updated pics, this time from the my cross country trek. Stopped off at Bonneville and was rewarded with an unlawful amount of fun and a 1927 Bentley and the pics underneath show how the plasti dip cleaned up after the roadtrip/salt. One bit of note the salt is near impossible to get out of the plasti dip unless you get on it right away. Anyway more pics!


1927 Bentley, god it sounded good and we traded a ride in his car for a ride in mine out on the flats. Surprising the old beast got up to over 90mph!!!

Bonneville aftermath

All cleaned up and back in its original home Lake Norman NC

Mine and a couple friends

one last gratuitous shot


If anyone has any questions feel free to ask, the lessons I've learned so far: My buddy topped off the my fuel tank and a bit of gas leaked out, well not knowing any better he tried to rub off the fuel and it took the plasti dip with it. Bough a rattle can of clear and patched it up. Other than that the stuff has held up surprisingly well.

Looks like you have mud residue still on the rear bumper? Try to use simple green to clean it up.

Yea there's a couple spots that are being very stubborn. Tried purple power in a small area and it's way to strong so simple green is up next.

Thanks the route we took was a lot of fun, Seattle to Grass Valley CA care of hwy 101 and 20. Then the loneliest road in America hwy 50 up to Ely then 93 to Bonneville. After that the trip was boring. End destination being Charlotte NC.

Don't get me wrong I love the car but it's not exactly a great long distance tourer anymore lol

So would you say its overall more difficult to clean your car from mud/dust with the plastidip clearcoat on it?

no if anything I've found it easier, minus the salt flat gunk. But I think a big part of that is because I didnt get a chance to give the car a good wash till almost 2k miles later. But you dont really have to worry about scratching the car so you can pretty much go to town on it. Since I've been back in NC and we have the wonderful red clay everywhere. Havent had any issues washing it out with minimal effort.

This car looks very familiar! 2013 DGM hatch across the way

The clear plastidip looks great in person, definitely sets it apart from the pack, and mutes the WRB just a tad. Nice car all in all!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but those are the worst STI factory wheels in the history of ever.

Now, with that out of the way, I LOVE them on your car. They look really simple, clean, and compliment the bugeye perfectly.

They are still boat anchors, but they look like good boat anchors on your car

Haha thanks I've always liked the chunky 5spoke almost old school rally look and I needed a cheap set of daily driver wheels in 5x114.3 since I did the drivetrain swap. Found a set for $400 and thought about painting them and the more I looked at them the more I loved them.

The two downsides of them was trying to get them to fit under my car, the rears were a pain, and they are heavy as a sob. But I have a set of Blitz Profile 8's for my summer wheels that fit perfect so they will be going on once I get settled in up in CT (active duty transferring yadda yadda)

Car looks great! Im surprised more people haven't tried this. Its essentially giving your paint the satin wrap look, including the benefits of protection.

Just looked it up, the wheels are 28lbs a piece?! If the oem wheel sticky is correct. That IS a boat anchor. I don't think they look bad, but damn that's heavy.

Thanks guys, yea they are heavy as a sob but they were cheap and in good shape. If you look through my build thread thats been kinda my motto. I'm not trying to be the fastest, cleanest, or best bugeye. Just want mine to be fun, and a little different. So far I think I've nailed it.

careful with the simple green, full strength with no water it's pretty aggressive
use plenty of water and it's fine

car looks killer!!
makes me think things i probably shouldn't be thinking tho
